MSV Medical Students

The Medical Society of Virginia’s (MSV) Medical Student Section (MSS) was established in 1997 to serve as a unified voice for students in state and national affairs. The MSS is represented by a Governing Council (GC), which represents six medical schools in Virginia.

The MSS participates at the local, state, and national levels. Involvement is attainable through school chapter opportunities, serving on the GC, and nationally through the American Medical Association (AMA-MSS), allowing students a first-hand look at how important physician involvement is to the future of health care.

The purpose of the MSV-MSS is to inspire medical citizenship and thus create a long-term commitment to medicine through engagement, awareness and involvement of medical student members.
